The California Department of Public Health is warning consumers to not eat soups from One Gun Ranch and Organic Soup Kitchen because they may have been improperly produced, making them susceptible to Clostridium botulinum. That bacteria flourishes in low oxygen (anerobic) environments such as canned foods, and is a particular problem in low-acid canned foods.
